Gosh, that's hard to ack something like that :-)

But considering that the control module driver is not there yet, I have
no choice but accepting that one if we want to have the functionality
we've been waiting for years.

Could you just update the patch with a big disclaimer on top of the
address range to explain that this should not belong here and will be
removed ASAP, when the proper driver will be done.

Then you sign the patch with your blood and that should be fine for me :-).
